There is a little retiscence in getting overly excited about the New Amazing Spider-man movie in me until now. The last thing anyone needs is another creation movie (everyone knows it; it’s the lore of the street now like Superman getting it on with Lois Lane and Batman’s an orphan; Peter Parker got bitten by a radioactive Spider). However, whatever initial fear was developed in the previous trailers and teasers, Andrew Garfield as Spider-man being one of them – this trailer begins to torch them.
Tobey Macguire was a great Spider-man but couldn’t knock out a Spider-quip in the way that Andrew Garfield clearly can. Oddly, it was almost an aspect of the wall-crawler many had forgotten following the first three movies. Spider-man is a wise-ass. To deal with the fear and insecurities, Parker always through out quirky one liners (something that has made other Marvel characters – notably fellow Avenger Wolverine – want to kill him).
But it was that detail that perhaps we missed in the Sam Raimi trilogy (excellent though the first two were). When the mask went on, it was only Spider-man.
If this trailer’s anything to go by we’ll be seeing Parker under the suit during the massively expensive fight scenes.
‘Aaah, you’ve found my weakness – really small knives!!’
